Contest to run during football season
Niagara Frontier Publications is expanding its fall food contest this year. Now through the end of the football season, we want your input in naming the area’s best chicken wings, pizza, and place to watch a game. It could be a bar, a restaurant or a social club – the only requirement is that the nominee(s) be Western New York-based.
Voting is now underway.
•WNY’s Best Chicken Wings
•WNY’s Best Pizza
•WNY’s Best Place to Watch a Game
The place(s) with the most votes will be prominently featured in the Niagara County Tribune-Sentinel and Island Dispatch, with additional photos posted at www.wnypapers.com.
When you cast a vote for your favorites, you’ll be entered to win a food prize courtesy of an area restaurant. Winners will be chosen by random draw and notified by phone or email.
Good luck – and happy eating!
